“Madam, please save me.
The Fifth Miss wants to beat me to death!” Seeing Madam of Duke Xing come over, the old maid found her in a stronger position.
She rushed to Madam of Duke Xing, knelt on the ground, and cried loudly while wiping her tears and complaining.
“What happened The Fifth Miss just came back.
Why do you make such a scene” Madam of Duke Xing raised her eyes to look at Shao Wanru, who was walking over slowly from the corridor and said with a frown.
She talked in a low voice, seeming to be talking to herself or to the old maid.
The old maid, who felt extremely aggrieved, finally met the person who could uphold justice for her.
Hearing Madam of Duke Xings question, she immediately told what had happened, added inflammatory details, and described herself as the most aggrieved loyal servant and Shao Wanru as the evil master with no filial piety.
After all, she had worked in Old Madams courtyard before.
The lady coming in with Madam of Duke Xing glanced at Shao Wanru with disdain and sneered.
“Greetings, Second Aunt!” Shao Wanru came over, bowed deeply to Madam of Duke Xing, and said.
At the moment, the old maid had finished telling the whole thing and wiped her tears, while looking at Shao Wanru complacently.
She didnt believe that Shao Wanru dared to do anything to her in front of Madam of Duke Xing!
Shao Wanru was just an orphan, who was unfavored.
The old maid didnt believe that she could turn around the situation!
“Wanru, let her get up and dismiss the servants! You made such a scene as soon as you came back, which is really inappropriate.
If you are really dissatisfied with the servants, tell me whom you are dissatisfied with detailedly after getting in.
Ill assign other servants here!” Madam of Duke Xing said softly to Shao Wanru.
“Second Aunt, do you think I shouldnt deal with her” Shao Wanru raised her eyebrows and said in disapproval despite her soft voice.
“Its not a matter of that.
You just came back and began to sort out the servants in your courtyard.
You can deal with her after finding her dissatisfactory some time later.
Its not a good idea to deal with her directly!” Madam of Duke Xing explained patiently.
“Second Aunt, do you mean that I shouldnt deal with her Just now, the old maid said that she worked for grandma, so she wouldnt subject me to discipline.
In this case, whats the point of letting her stay for a period of time” Shao Wanru said calmly and didnt intend to make any concession.
“Wanru, how can you talk like that! I just think that even if the old maid did something wrong, theres no rush and you can deal with her later!” Madam of Duke Xing advised softly.
“Second Aunt, do you mean that I cant directly deal with those servants working for grandma or you even if they do something wrong In this case, Ill send this old maid to the government office, because I cant solve this problem!” Shao Wanru said indifferently while glancing at the old maid who was still kneeling on the ground with an aggrieved look.
Was she going to send the old maid to the government office for this kind of thing The lady coming in with Madam of Duke Xing involuntarily sneered.
“Its not a big deal… It will be embarrassing to bring it to the government office and make it a farce in front of others!” Madam of Duke Xing froze and then said with a smile.
“Second Aunt, do you think it not a big deal” Shao Wanru raised her eyebrows and said.
“Uh… its not a big deal!” Madam of Duke Xing said sarcastically and thought that Shao Wanru was a petty girl from a small place indeed.
Wasnt it a trivial matter Nevertheless, Shao Wanrus one-track mind was helpful to her.
She brought Infanta Yuanan here today with the intention of making Infanta Yuanan a witness.
Old Madam didnt have a voice in some things in front of the Empress Dowager, but Infanta Yuanan did!
“Well, Second Aunt, please have a look!” Shao Wanru said coldly and gestured to Yujie beside her.
Yujie took two steps forward, pulled the old maid up, took out a small box after touching her sleeve, and handed it to Madam of Duke Xing.
“When I came in just now, I saw her sneaking out.
When I instructed Nanny Yu to bring the servants here, she deliberately instigated a discussion in the yard.
When I asked her to come over and intended to check on her, she claimed that she worked for grandma and I couldnt deal with her at will!”
Shao Wanru looked calmly at Madam of Duke Xing, whose face stiffened, and said, “Second Aunt, since the old maid works for grandma, why is she assigned to my yard If she comes here to serve me, why does she claim that she works for grandma If I dont deal with her now, should I deal with her after she sells the stuff”
With a stiff smile, Madam of Duke Xing looked at the small gift box held by Yujie in astonishment.
The exquisite patterns on it indicated that it didnt belong to their mansion.
Thinking of this, Madam of Duke Xing felt her eyebrows twitched and figured out where it came from!
It was one of the gifts from the Empress Dowager.
Old Madam kept most of the gifts in her courtyard, while a few of them were sent to Shao Wanrus Piaoyun Courtyard.
Could the old maid be daring enough to steal one of them
“Madam, I didnt do that.
I dont know what it is and where it comes from.
You must have planted it on me on purpose!”
Seeing the box in Yujies hands, the old maid hurriedly cried out a grievance with her face changing dramatically.
“Second Aunt, shouldnt we send the old maid to the government office The stuff looks unusual anyway!” Shao Wanru raised her watery eyes to look at Madam of Duke Xing and said without looking at the old maids flustered look.
“Let me have a look!” As Infanta Yuanan said, she reached out to take the box from Yujie.
Looking at the gorgeous box with golden patterns, she said with a strange look, “It is from the imperial palace.
This… this old maid is really daring!”
She, who just looked down on Shao Wanru at the beginning, now thought that the entire Duke Xings Mansion was so out of order that even an old maid was daring enough to steal the gift from the imperial palace!
“Second Aunt, do you think it necessary to send her to the government office” Shao Wanru said unhurriedly.
“I will make the decision after I report it to Old Madam.
If it is true, this evil old maid must be beaten to death!” Madam of Duke Xing gnashed her teeth and had to say with a flattering smile.
“Second Aunt, when I came in, these servants were talking about me and didnt treat me as their master, and this old maid came out, despised me, and claimed that she worked for grandma.
What should I do if someone else comes out later and claims that she works for you or grandma”
Instead of asking about how to deal with the old maid, Shao Wanru shifted the subject to the servants in her courtyard.
She took a step back for two steps forward by making a concession in dealing with the old maid so that Madam of Duke Xing couldnt prevent her from dealing with the servants in her courtyard again, especially when the old maid stole a gift from the Empress Dowager.
If she brought it to the government office or even to the Empress Dowager, Madam of Duke Xing could imagine how furious the Empress Dowager would be!
At this time, Madam of Duke Xing could only please Shao Wanru and prevent her from stirring up trouble!
“You can pick some servants from them.
If you are dissatisfied with…” Madam of Duke Xing had to make a concession in this matter.
“Is it okay if Im dissatisfied with all of them Second Aunt, can you find me a servant trader tomorrow I want to pick some new servants.
Regarding the servants present, just send them back to their former masters courtyards.
I cant make other masters short of servants!”
Shao Wanru said!
Her words sounded nice and she seemed to make the decision for the sake of other masters in the mansion.
However, considering what was going on in front of them, the meaning behind her words was not as nice as it seemed to be.
Madam of Duke Xing felt so aggrieved that she almost lost control of herself and twisted the handkerchief in her hand into a ball.
She had intended to use Infanta Yuanan to suppress Shao Wanru.
Unexpectedly, not only did she fail to do that, but also Infanta Yuanan saw the scene in front of them.
The box was probably a trap set by Shao Wanru.
However, it was difficult to find out the truth, and no one could prove the old maids innocence.
Making her agree on picking some new servants in front of Infanta Yuanan was like a slap in her face.
However, in this situation, she couldnt say no.
“Wanru, since you are dissatisfied with them, Ill find you a servant trader tomorrow!” These words almost came out through her gnashed teeth.
Madam of Duke Xing thought that she could restrain herself well, but at this moment, she almost lost control of herself!
“Thank you, Second Aunt!” Shao Wanru said with a sweet smile like an innocent girl, which made Madam of Duke Xing so furious that her lungs almost exploded!
However, she couldnt say anything.
“Second Aunt, you can take this old maid away and deal with her.
I hope you can find out the truth.
This old maid may be wronged!” Shao Wanru looked at the old maid, who almost collapsed and shivered in fear, and said indifferently.
The gift given by the Empress Dowager was discovered from the old maid when Shao Wanru just returned to the courtyard in Duke Xings Mansion, If the old maid was not the thief, who was the thief Someone had to take the blame.
However, the servants here were not innocent!
Although they did not steal the gift from the imperial palace, something else they had done might be found out.
Madam of Duke Xing had specially picked some problem servants to send here, so the servants present had all done something wrong.
“Wanru, rest assured.
Old Madam and I will find out the truth and not let you feel aggrieved!” Madam of Duke Xing had to promise to prove her innocence.
“Thank you, Second Aunt.
I hope that you wont think that I overstep the line!” Shao Wanru said in an increasingly gentle voice and bowed to Madam of Duke Xing sideways with a smile.
She behaved so properly in accordance with the rules that no one could find fault with her.
A trace of gloom and rage flashed across Madam of Duke Xings eyes, but she still had to show a gentle and comforting smile, because she had to take it.
She had thought that Shao Wanru would at least deal with the servants a period of time after she moved to Duke Xings Mansion.
After a period of time, it would be impossible for her to deal with all the servants in her courtyard.
Unexpectedly, Shao Wanru acted so simply and rudely and disrupted all her plans as soon as she moved to Duke Xings Mansion.
At this moment, she had to make a concession in front of the servants who were going to be driven away from here.
Madam of Duke Xing had never felt so embarrassed since she married into Duke Xings Mansion.
“Wanru, have a good rest.
Im taking them away now!” Madam of Duke Xing said reluctantly.
“Thank you, Second Aunt!” Shao Wanru said and bowed politely again.
The more polite she was, the angrier Madam of Duke Xing got.
However, she had to take it at the moment, because it was related to the Empress Dowager.
She couldnt lose a great deal through trying to save a little.
Gnashing her teeth, she winked at the one beside her and turned to leave.
“Madam of Duke Xing, please wait a minute!” A cold voice suddenly came from beside her and stopped Madam of Duke Xing, who was about to leave.
Shao Wanru stopped and rolled her watery eyes.
Despite her astonished look, she seemed to be clear about what was going to happen.
She was right.
The matter hadnt been settled yet!
Since Infanta Yuanan had seen it, how could she turn a blind eye to it If she really turned a blind eye to it, she would be blamed for ignoring it…
